Four juveniles have been arrested in connection with crimes in the Homeland neighborhood of Baltimore, police said.

The incidents happened in the 5000 and 5100 blocks of Spring Lake Way in the last few days, police said. Both victims were women, including a woman and her infant child, Baltimore police media relations Chief T.J. Smith said.

Police said a group of four people between the ages of 12 and 18 attempted to rob and carjack a woman around 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

"(It's) very disturbing that we're talking about children of that age (committing crimes)," Smith said.

A woman and her infant child were robbed and carjacked at gunpoint around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said. Smith said there were five or six robbers with an age range between 14 and 17 years old.

"A woman and her infant child, a seven-week-old in the arms of her mom, were victims of an armed robbery," Smith said.

Smith said the descriptions are vague.

One of those involved in the carjacking is described as a 17-year-old black male with a light complexion, wearing red shorts and an orange shirt. He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 245 pounds, police said.

"He actually probably stands out because he's one of the larger kids out of this group," Smith said. "So if anyone recognizes any friend of theirs, and any person driving a vehicle that's not theirs -- he stole a Volkswagen Passat -- and he fits that description, we'd like for you to give us a call."

In the armed robbery, one attacker is described a black male with a medium complexion, about 14 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, wearing tan pants and a white shirt, police said.

Smith said there is a strong possibility that the same group of juveniles committed both crimes.

"The possibility is off-the-charts high. It's more than likely it's the same group of people, and that's what we've seen in a lot of these cases," Smith said. "We absolutely believe these are linked incidents, where a group of juveniles are acting reckless and out of control and need to be controlled. And we need their parents to help us out and the community to hopefully help us out and identify them."

Officers canvassed the neighborhood Wednesday, going door-to-door to try and get more information. News of the crimes rattled some long-time residents.

"I've lived in Baltimore my whole life. My family's been here since the 1700s. My wife's family has been here since the 1700s. We're getting out," Homeland resident Thomas Maxwell said.

Shortly before 5:30 p.m., Smith in a tweet said the stolen Volkswagen was recovered in the 5900 block Benton Heights northeast Baltimore.

"The Regional Auto Theft Taskforce (RATT) was deployed to the area. They spotted the stolen vehicle and attempted to make a traffic stop. The occupants did not stop and fled in the vehicle. With the assistance of the Baltimore City Foxtrot, Baltimore County Aviation and northeast patrol officers, they were able to apprehend two suspects who bailed out of the vehicle. A weapon was recovered as well," Smith said.

Authorities are searching for the remaining suspects, police said. A short time later, two more juveniles were taken into custody, Smith said. The four juveniles have not yet been charged.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 410-366-6341 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 866-7LOCKUP.
